Earth View

„In the middle of the 20th century, we saw our planet from space for the first time. Historians may eventually find that this Vision had a greater impact on thought
than did the Copernican Revolution of the 16th century, which upset the human
self-image by revealing that the Earth is not the centre of the universerse.
From space, we see a small and fragile ball dominated not by human activity
and edifice but by a pattern of clouds, oceans, greenery, and soils.
Humanity’s inability to fit ist activities into that pattern is changing planetary systems, fundamentally. Many such changes are accompanied by life-threatening hazards.
This new reality, from which there is no escape, must be recognized – and managed.“
Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development: Our Common Future, From One Earth to One World, presented to the UN General Assembly, 1987,
